Got Papers? #DREAMAct

Location

Born somewhere

Don't know how to spell the fucking place

Grew up in Texas

Figured my life would be here

Case made

Nothing but America in my trace

No! No! No! Can't go to college 'cause you a fake

What about my 4.0?

What about my 2400, yo?

Don't care about that shit unless you got a green piece of paper to back yo ass up

Gimme Work? 

That's all Imma give you but nothing more

Don't expect to prosper without that piece of paper 

It wasn't my decision

Parents thought they were helping

Instead they created a fakey who's got no papers

Can't succeed 

Can't proceed

Do I really need a piece of paper to dream?
